I think you would need to move your DNS to somebody like or (just of the top of my head, there are probably lots more) and use their geo-location feature.

That way, somebody with an IP from Asia will receive the  IP of your Asian server when it asks DNS about the IP of your domain-name.

Maybe somebody who has done this before can comment - I’ve looked into it, but never seriously.
